Does anyone know how a guy would get into the top of the dash in a 77 grand prix and remove the center speaker?

I would start by removing the entire glove box and see if I can get to the speaker once the glove box is out of the way.

That was it! One tiny bolt from the glove box hinge holding it to the dash, the rest was clipped in. Thanks for the help! 😁 I think this speaker might be toast..lol

Yes, but you can get a replacement for sure. I think Custom Autosound may make a dual speaker replacement.

Yeah there's a few sites I found that have aftermarket replacements. Pretty sure my uncle rigged the aftermarket tape deck in her back in the 90s so there's a mess lol

What are your plans for the radio and speakers?

Well my goal is to keep the car stock, so a factory remake of the original stereo or something close and replacement speakers is about all I plan to do there

You should be able to get a remanufactured / rebuilt / used Delco AM/FM or AM/FM cassette radio from the era rather easily. Those radios were almost universal fit between GM makes and models back in the day (meaning a radio from say a Buick or Cadillac would also fit).

Custom AutoSound and Retro Sound both make retro style radios with modern radio conveniences too. They are priced accordingly too.
